Swagga Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Pleasure P has announced the release of his hugely anticipated debut album, “THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER.” The collection – which features the hit singles “Boyfriend #2” and “Did You Wrong” – arrives in stores and at all digital retailers today, June 9th.
“Boyfriend #2” was a #1 Urban radio hit earlier this spring, while also scoring significant airplay at Rhythmic outlets nationwide. The single comes in this week at #7 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay” chart. In addition, the “Boyfriend #2” companion video clip is blowing up everywhere, with major rotation at MTV, MTV Jams, MTV Hits, and VH1 Soul. “Boyfriend #2” also reached the #2 spot on BET’s 106 & Park, where Pleasure is slated to perform live today, Tuesday, June 9th (check local listings).
The success of “Boyfriend #2” follows Pleasure P’s smash debut single, “Did You Wrong,” which lit up the Rhythmic charts last fall. The track’s accompanying video – which can be viewed at Pleasure P’s official website, http://www.pleasurepmusic.com — proved a blockbuster introduction for the Miami-based singer, reaching the top 5 on BET’s 106 & Park countdown.
“Under,” the next single from “THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER,” is set to impact this week at Urban radio outlets coast to coast. A companion video – directed by Erik White (Diddy, T.I., Chris Brown) – is currently in post-production and will have its world premiere on Pleasure’s popular MySpace page – located at http://www.myspace.com/pleasurepmyspace – later this month.
Pleasure P – who first attracted international attention as a member of Bluestar/Atlantic recording group Pretty Ricky – heralded the release of “THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER” with a rapturously received live appearance at this weekend’s Hot 97 Summer Jam 2009 at New Jersey’s Giants Stadium. “The New Bad-Boy of R&B” has also been featured in a wide array of publications and online outlets, including XXL, Sister 2 Sister, Black Men, Vibe, Hip Hop Weekly, DJBooth.net, ConcreteLoop.com, and UrbanStreetz.com.
